Jerome Jullien, Head of Nokia Global Channel & Alliances, said: "The Nokia Global Partner Program is a critical component of our sales force - and strengthens our primary route to market for enterprise and public sector business opportunities. We are pleased to welcome Westcon-Comstor to the program to help drive Nokia's vision for what the next industrial revolution will look like and enable enterprises to own it all."
Rentia Booysen, Collaboration business unit manager at Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa, said: "With its superior ability to connect the modern, digital business in the 'automation of everything' era, we believe that through our collaboration with Nokia, we will enable businesses to embrace emerging technologies like 5G and help place enterprises at the forefront of industry's digital age."
In June 2019 Westcon-Comstor Sub-Saharan Africa achieved a Level 1 B-BBEE (broad based black economic empowerment) rating in SA.
The company, which is now 51% black-owned, with more than 30% black woman ownership, says commitment to development, diversity and equity representation has paved the way for this milestone.
In April 2019 the company announced two key distribution deals, one with NetApp and the other with Poly (the newly launched brand name reflecting Plantronics and Polycom).
